Answer: This information is not considered legal advice, you may want to consult with an attorney. If the credit card debt is not being paid, your mother could be sued by credit card company. Most times, credit card companies do not go after homes, those are reserved for secured loans. I would suggest you contact an attorney for advice on how to handle this debt.
